Testing the waters, thinking about selling the G

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

Where did you get the leather seat covers made and how long ago, I’m toying with the idea of just using the vinyl ones.

Frank what’s the price range that you’re looking to get for your G? It’s a wonderful looking example.

Hi Steven,

I have five answers for you:

1) I want as much as possible
2) I'd like to at least break even
3) now that it is going to auction, I can't really discuss it
4) if you are interested in purchasing it, PM me and we can see if we can agree on a value
5) what do you think it's worth?

Sorry if that seems snarky but if you've ever dealt with BAT they want exclusivity for the sale avenue and they strongly suggest not revealing if you have a reserve and if you do, what it might be.

Thanks for the interest

No problem at all Frank, I don’t believe your comment was snarky. Seeing that your G is in a desirable color combination although the interior color is not original, I believe it should at least bring a minimum of $22k. My price is solely based on the only previous sale of XR7G on BAT that I saw. I looked for yours but I did not see it listed. Best of luck with your sale. It’s a beautiful Cougar.

I saw it and spoke to you about it at the last NPD car show in Silver Springs Fl. It's a shame about the bad paint but still a awesome Cougar. If I had the money I would buy it though. If I sell my Cat and Harley before you I'll get back to ya. :)
